    AMD published its near-monthly installment of the ATI Catalyst Software Suite, which provides essential drivers for the company's ATI Radeon graphics processors, AMD 7-series chipset IGPs, ATI multimedia products, and the AMD FireStream GPGPU processors. Version 9.11 announced today, comes with the same hardware support base as the older version, includes two new features, and carries the usual application-specific fixes.

    New features include GPU Acceleration of H.264 video content using Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta, and High Quality downscaling for video transcoding MSE. The release of ATI Catalyst, according to AMD, supports the new Hardware Acceleration features of Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta for video encoded in the H.264 format. Adobe Flash Player 10.1 Beta introduces hardware-based H.264 video decoding to deliver smooth video playback, reduce system resource utilization, and preserve battery life. Hardware acceleration is supported on all existing Radeon HD 5000 and HD 4000 series graphics processors. The release of ATI Catalyst includes an enhancement for the ATI Video converter for users transcoding high quality interlaced content (1920x1080i @60i videos) down to small resolution progressive content (320x240 @30p - iPod videos as an example), by maintaining high visual quality when down-scaling by a significant amount and converting interlaced video content to progressive. For a list of minor issues fixed in the release, refer to the Release Notes document.

    LOL, too late, I took the 5770 out and put the 9800Gt back...(I tried one of the 5770s in my back up comp with XP and it sucked so bad at Borderlands)

    The good thing is now the 5770 can go with the other 5770 in a real comp

    Are the 4870x2s still getting good performance out of these?

    I'm sitting on 9.9s but been hesitant since the newer cards came out.

    I rest my case with the Legacy Driver Support, i guess the Driver Model in Win 7 is the same as Win Vista

    almost the same.

    the only real difference is that vista works in WDDM1.0, while 7 works in 1.0 or 1.1


    the difference is whether aero is rendered in DX9 or DX10 really - it saves system ram in DX10, so you can lose out on performance if you run vista drivers

    One would hope eh? I've heard interesting things about 9.12 betas, and I have no idea what these could do as I don't have a card to test. :toast:

    Since AMD wont get their heads out of their butts and Release Win 7 Only Drivers, trust me Vista is going to be phased out fairly quickly by the time the first Service Pack comes out.

    And still no fix for 1920x1080P DX10 refresh issue in Vista\Win7. If they don't get it fixed by time i come to buy another card it will not be ATI that's for sure.

    its tied into the 59hz bug (which i'm arguing with people in another thread who are trying to tell me its all made up and not a problem)


    DX10 games look at the list of refresh rates and see two digit numbers


    50
    59
    60 (interlaced)
    60 (Progressive)

    when 60Hz progressive isnt there (due to the 59Hz bug) they go to 60Hz interlaced, thinking that 60 is higher than 59... yeah, problem.

    as for vista (Which doesnt get the 59Hz bug), its just that some apps choose the wrong "60"


    the only solution for vista users is to shoot themselves, while 7 users can try various tricks such as modified monitor drivers in an attempt to lock the screen to 60Hz only - HDMI users tend to be screwed here

    Yes, which is why they released the platform update (with dx11) for Vista.... Because they want to phase it out....

    :shadedshu

    I would be happy to use Windows 7 (seeing as how I get it free via MSDNAA). Only issue is my wireless card doesn't work with any drivers I have tried (even the ones supplied by MS). The wireless card that works in Vista. *shock* Windows 7 is not pure goodness from heaven...

    Well, being banned to ATI/AMD forums just 2 days ago for argument with moderator saying 'ATI/AMD Hardware should not work as the box says when bought & since when has new hardware worked as said' where I answered 'Perhaps you should print that on the retail box too 'Maybe we support DirectX 11 and ATI Stream, if we ever get the drivers out' is pretty much enough for me on ATI/AMD drivers to say how their support is.

    Also, to mention every single message which says anything bad on ATI/AMD forums are deleted & any disagreement with their moderator is automatic ban to anyone even remotely intelligent to discover their bad software support to the all amazing hardware they make. Funny since when support forums started banning people for asking for support I wonder.

    enough said?

    i went through the banning thing over there.

    made a thread about it here which got enough attention, that i got contacted by someone with contacts over there and got me unbanned - but still, you cant get anything fixed.


    its like teh crossfire flickering issue - you bring it up and you just get BS answers "oh try this this and this" - its useless, they dont work and never have. you just get told to TRY something thats never going to work, and then ignored when you say it didnt work.

    Well this is DX10 related as it only does when it's turned on. And also it sets the HDTV to 30Hz as the TV tells me this and has the lovely black borders to it lol. Cannot get over 30Hz under DX10 and the only way is to turn off DX10.

    Oddest one i have seen lately was Torchlight were i cannot use AA without getting black borders but. If AA is turned on it gets the black borders and runs at 24Hz (23.7). Turn AA of it's back at 1080P at 60Hz..

    30Hz = 60Hz interlaced


    thats just how it shows up in windows since it cant specify interlaced
